  • Move UWKW from prototype to wider use at UW
  • LIS theory & research informed:
    • Design process
    • Features
    • Guidelines for use
implications for lis field
Implications for LIS field
  • Study information behavior in teaching and learning
  • Explore knowledge representation as a tool for learning
  • Translate research findings into design heuristics
